Calorie Counting is...

easy to cheat on...yup I said it. I use my fitness pal to log my cals in and cals out on and I love it. However, it is super easy to let the little calories get away from you and they can add up! I have not been logging my morning coffee or the creamer in my coffee there is at least 50 calories in that. I don't log the ketchup on my veggie burgers or the cheez its I steal from my son. So now I have a new plan. If I don't log it I don't eat it. Simple. as. that. But is it easy? Hell no! What is my plan of attack? I am going to plan my day the night before and log it in MFP already. IF I decide to add something in I can still add it in. Easy peasy...I hope. 

Here is my plan for tomorrow...I'm going to focus on eating smaller meals throughout the day:

Wake up between 6:30 and 7

Breakfast: 1 cup Kashi go lean, 1/2 banana and 2/3 cup light vanilla soy milk 258 cals 

Workout between 8 and 9 am C25K week 5 day 2 plus 25 minutes elliptical total 55 minutes

"Snack:" 1 premade chocolate muscle milk light + frozen half of banana blended 200 cals

Will drink my snack on my way to work and at work at 11. 
Late Lunch: (around 2) Lean Pocket 250-300 cals

2nd Snack (if needed 4:00): 100 calorie popcorn bag or granola bar 100 cals

Dinner (6:00): 1 cup brown rice, 4-6 oz chicken breast and veggies about 400 cals

Add this all up it is about 1228 calories

I REALLY hope this helps tomorrow (and every day after tomorrow)! 

I am SO not looking forward to weigh in Wednesday! :)

I will leave you with some AMAZING pictures.

  1. I hate calorie counting. Some days I think... hhmm.. Maybe I would rather stay fat than have to keep counting...
